Veritas 12.5 should have this hotfix installed

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH74523

And only works with Windows 2008 R2

Or upgrade to Backup Exec 2010 R2

You will need to have the R2 version of 2008 server and run updates.

Why R2?  The Agent installs and works on our other servers that aren't running R2.
